ASTON VILLA HAVE announced that Ireland U21 international Jack Grealish has signed a new deal with the club.

The talented 19-year-old broke into the first team at the end of last season after impressing during a loan spell at Notts County.

Winger Grealish has already made five appearances for Villa this term and they have tied him down with a four-year contract after reports that Chelsea were considering a move.

“I’m delighted and it’s a a dream come true to commit my future to my boyhood team,” Grealish said.

“I’ve had a season ticket at Villa since I was four years old and came to every game, so this is a big thing for me and my family.”

No room for error: Ireland must be ‘really focused, really strong’, says O’Neill
